After three years of (semi) regular existence, it is now high-time that the Pervasive Labour Union zine takes a very close look at the universe of the alternatives to corporate social networks.

What do these alternatives look like? What are the requirements of a 'true' alternative?
The Pervasive Labour Union zine already broached some of these topics on its Special Issue with the Homebrew Server Club on XMPP. To follow the HBSC’s strategy, a premium should be put on alternative approaches, not on any specific alternative apps.
We need federated social networking solutions based on open standards that are able to communicate among themselves, regardless of the platform being used.

Which protocols can and are being developed to achieve interoperability between the different alternatives? How do scale and trust influence the field? What are the forces at play within this realm and how to engage with them?
With this issue, we propose not only to collect a field guide of sorts, but also to open up the discussion on the alternatives and how to tackle the challenges posed by network effects, scalability and financial viability.

DEADLINE: February 5th

The discourse of startup/entrepreneurship culture has become so weird, ambivalent and dystopian that in the last years it has made the practice of tactical media art (i.e. pointing how shitty things are or how shittier things will be, through means of artistic and sometimes performative appropriation, pranks and intervention) completely pointless. We're knee deep into madness.

What did time look like before the uniformity brought by networked devices? Is the circadian rhythm obsolete? How is software shaping and in turn being shaped by different understandings of temporality? What if wasting time on videogames is actually a productive and edifying habit?

With a remote contribution by Italian designer Michele Galluzzo, and together with Dutch designer Rik Laging, “neurophysical designer” Luis Rodil-Fernández, a delegation of the Techno-Galactic Guide to Software Observation (Hans Lammerant, Mia Melvaer and Martino Morandi) and XPUB (the Experimental Publishing program of the Piet Zwart Institute), we will tackle these and more questions during an evening dedicated both to the malleability and rigidity of time.
